? >> the jeep ad. that was the biggest one. they spent the last 14 days of the election on the defense. day after day they had to answer for that. it put them on the defense for a long time because it was not true. >> the flip side of that, you put the events back in spring, defining him. a lot of regret among republicans about how early you define him. the kind of campaign -- why was that a brilliant insight? >> at the time it was risky because of super pacs. we were going to spend a majority of our money in the summer and not of the fall. we were going to get out spend because we believed that late tv did not matter as much. it turns out we were right. >> based on what you know about the nation's mood and geography, everything you learned, what republican candidate would have had the best shot? >> that is a good question. we were honest about our concerns about jon huntsman. i think he would have been a tough general election candidate. as someone who helped manage his confirmation, he is a good guy. we looked at his profile and thought he would have been difficult. >> and you thought by

there is the iron dome missile defense system. just seconds before we went on the air, there was a rocket attack. the iron dome battery behind me fired at least two of these interceptors. in total today, there have been at least 130 rockets that have been fired into israel by the militants in gaza. one of these rockets traveled as far as tel aviv suburb. it hit an apartment building there. it did extensive damage. there were no serious injuries. but this is the furthest hit yet when it comes to an israeli city. what many of the residents of israel say, they do not want to see a ground incursion when it comes to these rocket attacks, they say they must come to an end. listen. >> cannot go to the job. our life is upside down. scarey. it has to stop. >> there were also air raid sirens in jerusalem today. one of the rockets landed outside that city. ironically in a palestinian village. >> shep: david lee miller live in israel where the military warned civilians in gaza to avoid certain areas during this conflict. many of the people in the tightly controlled territory say there is no place to go. a l
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
participated in the defense department. government doesn't build weaponry. private-sector does that. i presented the figures earlier today with the students and faculty members. in 1980, government contracting with the private sector represented about $47 billion. it was $513 billion in 2008. that is a bit of an increase. you are raising a good question. there are conflicts between government and business that are hard to work out, especially in areas of regulation. they do not like that. there are many ways that the government and the private sector have worked together to produce some of the great achievements in human history. >> please chummy in thanking professor rainey. >> thank you. >> to us for a program on retirement issues for the baby boomer generation. the event features author marc freedman. will open the lines and get your thoughts. organizations are more likely to cut matching contributions than retirement plans. more of that, not beginning at 2:00 p.m. eastern. the united nations security council is meeting to discuss the situation with israel and hamas and the gaza str
seeing about possibility violations? >> reporter: hi, wolf. yeah, we're hearing from the israeli defense forces that there have been at least two minor violations of the cease-fire. they're saying that at least two rockets were fired out of gaza. the information that we're getting is that these rockets either landed in an unpopulated area or in fact were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. of course we've been talking about so much over the past couple of days, by and large however it appears as though the cease-fire is holding. skies over ashkelon at this point in time are very quiet. however, wolf, one of the things you're not going to be seeing is what you just saw in arwa's report is people celebrating the cease-fire. in fact, we've been speaking to people here in ashkelon and some of them say they're actually quite disappointed because they don't feel that their military has gotten the job done yet or that the leaders were giving the military enough time to get the job done. let's listen into what one man had to say. >> not only myself, many people here, many friend

. >> the iron dome, israel's missile defense system is working phenomenally. many of its rockets, because of this iron dome, are not hitting their targets. could we see more attacks on the streets by terrorists, like in this bus attack? >> that's true, iron dome is an amazing success story, first anti-rocket device in history to actually work in warfare. we've taken down about 90% of the terrorist rockets that would have hit in our cities. they're going to hit outside the cities. and, yes, the terrorists will try anything to get at our civili civilians. we've seen it before. many, many bus bombings like this. we've all lost friends. i've lost a close family member in those bus bombings. they're very, very close for us. >> do activievents like this complicate secretary hillary clinton's efforts? >> they certainly don't help. where terrorists in gaza cannot open fire on us every week and paralyze half the country when they will. also the goal is to prevent iran from smuggling advanced weaponry and rockets into gaza that the terrorists then fire at our civilian. >> israeli ambassador to the
